In the heart of the Kempen you will find the Eight Beatitudes: Eersel, Duizel, Steensel, Knegsel, Wintelre, Reusel, Hulsel and Netersel. In the past, all those place names ended in'sel\\\' and were called'de selligheden\\\', or'the beatitudes\\\'. But Dutch soldiers who were stationed here during the Belgian Revolution scornfully called the villages 'the wretchedness'. But they are beautiful places! With this walking route you can explore three of these authentic villages in one go: Eersel, Duizel, Steensel. The route starts at the Bengel in Eersel. In the village of Steensel there is a church tower that dates from the fifteenth century. The route also takes you through the Wolfhoeksche Heide below Knegsel. Enjoy the view over the water at Landgoed Duynenwater, the former E3 beach. The route ends again at the market in Eersel, and after your walk you can settle down on one of the cozy terraces.
